About Alliance

Our History

Alliance schools were founded on the belief that all children – regardless of ZIP code, income, ability, or background – are capable of achieving at high levels.

Serving LA communities for nearly 20 years, Alliance is one of the largest and most successful nonprofit public school networks in the nation.

Over 95% of Alliance scholars have graduated from high school and been accepted to college.

Our small and personalized schools are nationally ranked, and have been recognized by the U.S. Department of Education, the California Department of Education, the USC Rossier School of Education, and U.S. News & World Report.

Our Approach

Community is at the center of who we are. Our schools strengthen neighborhoods by providing families and educators with a high-quality public school option focused on social emotional support, leading educator benefits and pay, and a personalized attention to every Alliance community member.

Why Alliance College-Ready Public Schools?

Alliance schools balance the academic rigor and college-prep we are nationally renowned for, with a deep commitment to develop life-long community leaders in partnership with our local communities.

Alliance schools have a proven record of success with over 20,000 alumni. Over 95% of Alliance scholars graduate from high school and are accepted to college. Most of our scholars are the first in their families to attend college.

Alliance values educators as professionals. We invest in our people through professional development, effective coaching, and socioemotional support. It’s no secret that Alliance is the pay leader in LA County for most teaching positions. All of this translates into exceptional teaching.

Alliance focuses on innovation, collaboration, local school autonomy, and a commitment to equity to best meet the needs of our scholars and staff.

Members of the Alliance network are change agents. Families, scholars, alumni, and staff meet regularly with elected officials and policymakers, and testify at school board and city council meetings, as well as at state and federal legislative sessions.

Our Belief

All kids can be exceptional. Through small, high-performing schools in underserved communities across Los Angeles, we demonstrate that college dreams, social emotional growth, and world-class teaching are possible.


Our Values

In a world that attempts to marginalize some of us to divide all of us, we know that power and progress comes through celebrating the identity, culture, and history of our educators, scholars, and families. These values drive our commitment to becoming an antiracist and pro-Black organization, from our teaching practices to how we build community.
